PROGRAM OUTLINE for this 1 day course in English

Course highlight

Cash has always been the lifeblood of organisations and therefore it is critical for the finance team to understand the world of treasury management.

During this one-day course, participants will discover the vastness of treasury management and will learn about its core components as well as recent trends.Treasury management is a vast area within finance and is becoming a top priority for most senior finance leaders. As a consequence, the treasurer is getting more exposure and the finance team as a whole is more and more involved in treasury related activities.
 

The main topics

  • Basic financial reports
  • Cash management roles
  • Cash budgeting and forecasting
  • Treasury transactions
  • Treasury systems
  • Introduction to financial risk management
  • Working capital management
  • Recent trends in treasury management

What you will learn

In this course you will learn about the role of treasury in today’s corporate organisation. We will cover the importance of cash flow statements, cash budgeting and forecasting and we will also introduce you to treasury systems and key treasury transactions. One of the expectations of treasurers is to be much more involved in (financial) risk management assessments and to provide risk mitigation. In the course we will give you a framework and insights that will help you in taking up this role in a confident way. We will also cover the (main) levers in working capital management and provide you with some recent trends in treasury management.

Recommended background

Some experience in treasury is nice-to-have but certainly not required.

Course format

This course will be taught using a combination of formal instructions, combined with practical and interactive exercises and case studies used to reinforce the concepts taught in each section of the course.   Practice-based learning and critical engagement is a key theme through all our courses allowing delegates to acquire the needed skills and techniques to be applied as soon as they are learned and developed.

Our International Experience

Participant feedback

A course with 10 participants is very good to favour the interactivity. Thanks for the perfect course content and lecture.

Very good course, teacher, and approach. Material available on-line prior the course + request to the participants about their expectations from the course.

A pleasant and knowledgeable instructor with a lot of interaction among participants.

An excellent course for people like myself.

Congratulations! Very well done. Nothing more to add.

I really appreciated the empathy and skills of the lecturer Bruno Bosch. Also, the size of the group (7 persons) was perfect to have the necessary interactivity throughout the course.

I strongly recommended this training to my colleagues as I found it very useful.

I think this was one of the best course I've ever attended. The trainer, Mrs Maureen, was extremely pedagogic and the structure of the course was very well planned with just the right mixture of theory versus practical examples and exercises.

It was a very enjoyable course. The group was small which made it easier to be 100% involved.  The exercises and case study were absolutely great and necessary to put the theory in practice. A very knowledgeable teacher.

It was nice to have a lecturer with profound knowledge on the topic so that the level of discussion could go further than the simple basics of valuation.

Lecturer had good understanding of the subject and good understanding of practical application.

Perfect for me. Exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you for the training, which was very clear and met my needs.

The course absolutely answered my expectations and needs.

The lecturer is a knowledgeable person with real market experience which is a plus.

The lecturer is excellent. She explained clear and control good interaction with students.

The training format and takeaways corresponds to what I expected. Thanks for the good preparation

Theoretical explanations good and with good interaction with audience.

There were lots of real life examples and relation to peoples own industries.

This was an excellent course and Kris made it very interesting and useful. He is highly knowledgeable, skilled and open to suggestions.

Thumbs up Maureen!

Very good and interesting training. One of the best I ever had.
